Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher

There are far too many books on “how to” live a successful spiritual life. Unfortunately, most offer a methodology that works for some rather than a broader approach suitable for all. By blending the ancient with the contemporary, offering experiential stories, and suggesting multiple possible starting points, Haase invites renewal.
  • Overall, how would you describe your spiritual health?
  • What spiritual practices have you found to resonate and/or have the greatest meaning at this stage of your life?
